Holy throwdown, Batman!

This Memorial Day (Monday, May 25) Steamboat Springs, Colo., is the place to be for the fourth annual Paddling Life Pro Invitational. Watch the best men and women kayakers in the world compete in a one-day, two-event competition for cash and prizes and year-long bragging rights.

Come see if two-time winners Stephen Wright and Tanya Faux can retain their titles three years in a row!

Who else will be on hand for the creek race/freestyle showdown?
Some of the top competitors in the world, with past participants including former world freestyle kayak champion Ruth Gordon, world kayak freestyle silver medalist Andrew Holcombe, Bryan Kirk, world freestyle kayak bronze medalist Nick Troutman, and more.

“It’s an awesome event,” says inaugural winner Jay Kincaid, whom other competitors won't have to worry about now that he announced his retirement. “Not many events test both creek boating and freestyle.”

With the top overall score determining the champion, the event will be followed by a post-event party at Sunpies Bistro featuring local bands, beer and other surprises. Last year’s event was a raging success for competitors and spectators alike, garnering TV from Resort Sports Network. “It’s an awesome event,” says inaugural winner Jay Kincaid. “Not many events test both creek boating and freestyle.”
